More of the same this week, but at least that much closer to the end:

  • swollen feet and legs
  • sleeplessness
  • heartburn
  • waddling
  • serious vag pain (like someome is jbbing y in the cooter with a knitting needle - ya, awesome)\
  • minor contractions - just strong braxton hicks
  • lots of rolling and pushing from Peanut.

Had my weekly appointent today and damnit the GBS test came back positive.


Also Peanut was being a pain and it took forever to find the HB. Freaked me right out of course. Doc again not sure which way they are positioned so we are gonna go for a scan after my appointment next week if she is still not sure.

So ready to be done with pregnancy and just want to meet my babes already.

As of Sunday this Momma to Be will be doing whatever she can to get this part started ...

Hoppy Easter

Well here it is, the last Easter as Two ... this time next year there will be a 11 month old roaming the grounds, being filled with tales of the Easter Bunny and a few goodies I am sure.

So, while I am in super nester-mode and in realizing this will most likely be the last holiday meal I prepare for a while I decided to whip up a classic meal: Tofurkey, Rosemary Roast Potatoes, Sweet Roasted Carrots, Buttery Peas and a giant Apple-Blueberry Pie (my first attempt at a lattice top, meh, but I am sure it will taste good!)

Tomorrow is Adventures in Cooking Part #2 as I begin to prepare all my freezer meal for when Peanut makes their grand appearance. On the list:

  • Chickpea Cutlets
  • Rice & Lentil Casserole
  • Sheppard's Pie
  • Tofu Balls
  • Chili
